Y'know, I need an attitude like Tito's like I need a bullet in my shoulder. And as of today, those Santa Clara shows are right here on the Archive under The Dead. All this cynicism is just plain poison. Oh, I cycled it through my body, I can't deny, but I've made my peace with all the marketing crap that comes with the band's short little ride through 2015, the parasites riding the beast (Relix, Wolfgang's, Shapiro, et al.). I think they all were as lackadaisical as Garcia thru most of their...
Yes, TITO, of course. Some anonymous guy on a forum.
After all the thousands of interviews with people who actually knew Jerry and say he was a kind, generous and loving person, then we have Tito, who says Jerry was a money grubbing, ruthless SOB.
Yeah all the benefit concerts and donations to charities were all a ruse.
C'mon, yeah Jerry had flaws like any human. And whatever happened after he got hooked on junk was due to the illness of addiction. But that doesn't wipe out his...
Nah, I am NOT buying this, you tito loving bball loser...
Just kidding; but, I am not...he DID believe a bunch of that crap about moving the human race ahead a step or two, and he had NO business "sense" (re: see our great debates about the "model", and how often they, ie, Jerry, got it WRONG the first ten yrs, trying to "do the right thing" and "give us the best records" and blah, blah, blah).
So, I think it's fair to call him naive, and a twinkie...
One of my favorite Tito reviews ever was when he was describing an encounter he had with a water park official at Cal Expo. he asked the guy why they stopped honoring access passes to the water park when you bought a ticket to a concert. The official's reply, "because water slides and acid don't mix."
Still cracks me up.
"I hope this hasn't changed."
It HAS changed. Unfortunately, the world has changed.
The fact that these shows are not here now and probably will never be hosted here is directly connected to the marketability of the the Fare Thee Well Tour. Since a cd/DVD or digital file can be produced infinitely, the "machine" manipulates supply and demand by making these exclusive, limited issue items. This makes financial sense because they never overstock product all while creating a...

Saw DSO on Friday the 13th. Worst show to my memory (which
aint that good to begin with). But at least I got to see AND HEAR Jerrys TB.
I called it the tonal savior of the night... l needed a tissue
Yes because the article, written as a "news piece" sounds eerily like Tito's review of the final GD show in 1995 which I copied in this 6 year-old thread regarding that show.
I think the similarity illustrates just how quickly the standard of serious news has gone to shit. In fact, I think Tito's effort is more accurate and far more entertaining.
"this author pulling a Tito, years after Tito has retired from pulling Titos is a sad commentary on the state of the WSJ."
Did you mean the Tito that used be on the Forum?
I've enjoyed this twice tonight:
Mainstream trolling sponsored by The WSJ.
If you've been a fan of The Grateful Dead long enough then you've met hundreds of people with similar opinions(to those of the author) regarding the band. That's why when asked about my hobbies I tend to reply, "I collect live concert recordings from the 60's, 70's and 80's". Thus evading the stigma of being GD fan and to avoid having to hear yet another stereo-typical retort.
However, the older I get the more likely I am to just lay it...
Um, are you saying I'm Skies? I dont even like croissants and I've yet to surrender to anyone.
As for where Tito is, I think his grandmother finally got around to remodeling her basement and kicked Tito, his Fathead collection and his signed Pirates of the Caribbean playing card out on the street.
Fuck off skies!
Where is Tito when you need him?
Whether he's really a nice person
Or if he just smiles a lot
Or if he has a son named pinocchio or what
Please don't confuse Chris with "Tito". I know Fred, from Deadhook, stayed in contact with Chris "smi2les/bellski" Bell for a while. She hasn't mentioned him lately, so I'm not sure about this whereabouts nor his condition. Guess I will have to check with Fred.

Earl B Powell - The minority whip of the forum. He alluded to having a big problem and I know he's checked in a few times. I do miss his voice of reason amongst all of the bleeding hearts around here.

One of my least favorite ways to end a Dead show, mid 80's through the end was their "Jimmy Buffetish" Good Lovin' . If I make a highlights tape, guess which song is first to be tossed ( along with LLR) . Sometimes in the early 80's , it can really get going, and even I have to admit to enjoying it . But here, in 94, they take a opposite approach , a slight slower, more deliberate, almost " latin" approach, as if in the back of someone's mind was a Cal Tjader , or Tito...
I've been blamed for worse believe it.
'Foolish Post' is my fav song off In The Dark.

Not sure of an answer subman, but what would be the answer
to the answer subman???
Here are some semi-related ideas:
I think tito & smokey have the right idea. But we all
know Mr. Tell 'won'
no...smil2es was not Koch, nor was tito, they were in a league of their own -lol
I'll take a kind troll over a mean spirited poster any day.

Did most of you notice the forum was shut down on the evening of 10/13? - In the midst of the troll's and other's rants, Jeff Kaplan made an appearance on another sub-forum, which I took as a warning, then after the hatecrap continued, the Forum was shut down until noon the next day.
Maybe I'm wrong, but I'm no longer going to feed any negativity at the GD forum. I saw that shutdown as a "Time out". I do not care if Koch, Tito,sm2ile2s or some "suspicious" first time poster...
AHAH! You were telephone toughguy! I knew it!
fighting both cliff hucker and robthewordsmith is like belgium attacking france because honduras stole canada's olympic metal.
You are either for the wordsmith or against the wordsmith.
Next thing you know, jglynn will attack micah and rasta because tito attacked sm2iles in a rbnw's wet dream....
This is funny funny funny.
If you check out the IA home page, you’ll see that both Noise Collector and I replied to a post (or posts) that was removed. Hence, our replies don’t appear here (though they’re still on the IA home page.)
Noise Collector had written:

The more you guys talk about them, the more they post to make you talk about them, etc, etc, etc...
I don't think thee troll is one persons.
I think it's 1 disgruntled deadhead from another website, one or two copycat pranksters who couldn't resist the s2miles and tito posts of yesteryear, and 1 really confused and out of place person who seems completely uninterested in the dead and just enjoys the interaction and the attention... I don't detect the same amount of maliciousness in all the...
I love Kemba, I really do. The kid is a winner and the run he's had in March matches up with anyone ever. That said, I'm all about Butler on Monday. I do not like Calhoun and I do not like how he runs his program. You can call that sour grapes, because as tito knows, I'll admit he's outcoached K before. I was there in Tampa. I know. That said, Calhoun is not good for the game. Congrats and enjoy. GO BULLDOGS! (but if i had to wager money....)
No - only always been me or advokat for the reasons I'v previously stated. But awhile back there was a lot of positing by and about smiles. I'll let some of the old timers weigh in on the same.
I just wish Tito was posting today ...
"I don't think Tito is Islam Sucks. He always comes back with a screen name with the word Tito in it.
Islam on the other hand is a Oakland/East Bay dweller who seems to hate everyone and every thing."
You may be right. The belligerence level exceeds Tito, if only a skosh. All indications now point to the gone but not forgotten(banned?) "oh_uh_um_ah ".
I don't think Tito is Islam Sucks. Tito likes 90's dead, doesn't seem to be racist, loves boxing, is a definite east coaster (probably a Sox fan), doesn't hide his identity (has shown vids of himself on YouTube), and is very creative with his insults toward others (the eat da poo poo vid, among others), and always comes back with a screen name with the word Tito in it.
Islam on the other hand is a Oakland/East Bay dweller who seems to hate everyone and every thing.

"Hmmm. rational1 sounds like a specific handle to me. And cursing on your first post is a lack of class .
Come on , what's your real handle ?"
Just a guess, but I'd have to say "Tito/Islam_sucks"...the alias king of LMA
First of all I love Henry Rollins mind, he will definitely make you use your mind if you see any of the shows he did on IFC, I think it was.
I have to mention to Charlie that I apologize for getting offended and didn't realize "Islam" was Tito and had to express my anger at his "BS " comments. I've been a "hippie" since I was 6 wearing tye-dies and beads to catholic school in 67' I got from my older sister who was in college at Northwestern. Even though I believe...
OK, so I was gonna ask if you had a good time, but then I thought: Is Tito even a real person? Or is that bluedevil just pulling my leg?
Assuming you meant it, did you have fun? I was hoping for something from the 70s, but 3/29/87 worked too.
As lobster said, perhaps one of the best poster names I've seen in quite some time. Well done. All we need now is an Oil Can Boyd.
Thanks for the laugh, helps lessen the sting a little. Although this time around isn't as big a let down as previous years. Hell, I'm surprised they still had a shot as long as they did. Given all then went wrong this year I'd have to say they actually exceeded expectations.
Hmmm, a dissertation cmt consisting of Tito, TToughguy, and NC? Lets through in Smi2les for good measure, and Dire to make certain every cmt mtg ends with a fight among the "professors" (a clever ploy to insure they don't end up talking about YOU and critiquing your dissertation).
And, there is NO way I am letting Rob serve on my cmt; can you imagine the WORK you'd have to undertake with him editing your dissertation?
We'd never graduate.
I wonder what the job market's looking...
Hey Tito - Here's the thing about intolerance: I have in my life seen people murdered, right in front of me, because of mindless (and usually religion-fueled) hatred. You'll feel very differently about tolerance when the muslim jihadists want your christian head on a spike.
Now that is all.

Is there a way to block spam, or block user names associated with spam, such as our recent persistent (and undoubtedly robotized) visitor -- who will probably appear shortly right under this post)?
Or, alternately, send it only to posts by users with Tito in their names ...
Most of the people around me concurred, but we were always a large group of folks at Hampton (up to 30 folks travelling and staying in friends' homes and blocks of rooms). A few people were probably upset, but so it goes. No one said anything to me, but, wow, imagine nonconfrontational Deadheads. That's why I have so much "love" for Tito.
Do Not Approach. The UnSub is likely a recluse with serious father issues, who never quite lived up to expectations. The UnSub is likely an under-achiever whose dealings with authority figures resulted in multiple failures and firings. The UnSub has no real value to contribute to the world, and hence communicates his worthlessness to strangers in repeated rantings and ravings on again, no real value. The only logical result is the UnSub's frequent failure to maintain continuious employment will...
I've always enjoyed giving Tito shit about UConn.
I also crack up when Tito goes on one of his rants about hippy b.s. BUT do not see why he needs to attack Dire or Rob.
That said, his Cameron U.S. Blues vid was probably more enlightening than another invite to blow you.
I'll leave the thread with this since Tito always make me think of the same:
I actually laughed at the Jerry video but another video on that page caught my eye.
The Mountain Song with Jerry,Cosby, Kantner and Grace. I'd never heard anything about it before. Jerry on banjo is sweet and the harmony with David and Grace beautiful.
I think a careful reading of the archived posts will reveal that I do not get 'picked on' - rather I prod and provoke and elicit the predictably unimaginative and semi-literate response from Pavlov's Tito. Everyone should have a hobby.
And his good friend, Tito
I personally kind of enjoy their entertainment value. Sort of like the Circus Geek and his Unlucky Chickens.

For years now, this blessed forum has periodically been vexed by one or more trolls (does tito = smi2les?), who have all too often accomplished their pathetic goals of distracting people from useful discussion and generally stirring up trouble.
To recognize postings by this/these troll(s), always remember the three i's: illiteracy, irrelevance, and incomprehensibility. When you see these, walk calmly and resolutely away.
And should you be tempted to attack these pitiful creatures, think for...

Jody - that was meant for Dire. He and I used to always refer one another as asshole. And his battles with Tito are legendary. Please don't take offense.
However, I blame the wordsmith and his clan(s) for what is the longest 3 days of torture I've ever experienced. Drunk and hungover for a long weekend listening to bagpipes from all over the world. One time was enough (and a hell of a good time)
Outstanding...I have two nephews "over there", though both return soon, and a son, off to Marine OCS shortly, so can't say "I know the feeling" quite yet, but have a general idea.
But, what I am really signing on to say is that I am deeply disappointed ("hurt" is just too mild) to note that with the return of Tito I have been singled out for "ignore, with prejudice."
How heart breaking...a crushing defeat for former PMs reveling in their retirement. ...
I cant believe you elderly hippies go and see this atrocity cover band...they are really, really bad....remember when i used to make fun of them ten years ago on here? Guess what?

I am...
Well I can't say I have the energy to listen to the bs that usually accompanies the Troll's visits but I have to give kudos for the youtube effort.
I also really enjoyed the Tito "quote" in Stagger Lee.
Things are definitely spicy when the Troll comes to Forum.
Take the children from the room for all their sakes.
no, Tito is most assuredly not NC. Tito is a loser of the highest order even though he can be entertaining at times.
and yeah, where is rob?? saw him post here like once in the past few days or so (not that I am around all the time to see)
hope our scottish compatriot is doing ok
I don't know if you've met our favorite Troll. He's been quiet for some time now, but I'm so happy he's come out from under the bridge to regale us with quaint and folksy opinions on us and the world in general.
THAT'S IT!!! Tito is Sarah Palin!!!
Warning: Do Not Feed The Troll
He only grow stronger with angry responses.

Well "jer", you blasted everyone's picks but didn't suggest anything better.
While I agree that LiA, Cliff and others can probably weigh in with some illustrious examples, what are you contributing?
What makes your contribution better than the contributions of others? Wait, you didn't contribute anything constructive. Are you Tito?
And why has no one mentioned Tom C. He definitely brought a different perspective to the piano sound of the band. And though not a piano, his work...
Never seen a post, but she may have a new handle. Just like we all know that you are in truth really smiles, bellski, tito and telephone toughguy.
Or she went off to find fun at other sites w/ "real" deadheads and hippies.
Me too (er, both on the memory front, and the notion they were indeed good ol days...but you know, "these" are pretty good days as well to be hanging out at the Forum, even if I have about as much DEAD related info per post as Tito).
"being a little more droolingly, knuckle-dragging moronic?"
Rob, I've had the "drooling k-d moron" meter pegged for sometime now. It can't be that.
I cannot figure why some people find this forum intimidating. It was once a bit more wild-west. Dire and Tito(it's still not about fuckin' rainbows and unicorns people.) and TT and Loogy and Smi2les.....those were some wild(er) times.
Now, I'd say this place is rather tame and the inmates are quite well behaved. Much like a...
I thought so... this guy makes me look like rachel maddow (with a smaller package)... what's with the caps lock?
I gave up arguing on here long ago when my world changed and I realized that trying to convince tito that I was less of an asshole than he was is pointless.
I do like to shed some light on the hypocrisy of the democratic party though, if anyone is interested.
I found this on here while researching for a new video:
Sure, J--thanks; you too, HFlow (got your email as well)...boy, do I ever have more time on my hands having stepped down as PM--never realized how much effort it took commenting on spats between tito and kochman, or Dire and Bessie (much less discussions about fallacies of vegans, WWII, Churchill, etc), and with the decline of those sorts of Forum antics, I just don't see the need for it, eh? Besides, I felt like I'd said "it" all before, and then three times more for good (?)...

Sorry Cliff - I was being an asshole and trying to provoke some feedback from Tito and banditos since their respective teams (UConn and UNC) are playing in the NIT (which already started). The NCAA Pool remains open and at last count we had 15 people - I've submitted my bracket.
What's the over/under on Calipari and UK having any banner later vacated?
Not that is has anything to do with this thread, but thought you'd appreciate that until your return of late, many newbies round here often thought you and LiA were one and the same, at least given how many of us oldtimers refer to you and he, when imprecise, as just "Ashes"...much better than when folks confuse Dire with Tito...
